for slow collecting colemans is often times not about getting. yesterday I had a freind I decided to pass on a lantern and stove to. I am getting wa to many colemans and I had a stove that was to modern a 80s 425 and a double mantle 220J that I knew I did not have time to clean up and restore so I passed the coleman craze down to a buddy!

how many colemans have you gave away instead of collecting and keeping for yourself?

slow passing on the green colemaniteze to others!
Plans. there was supposed to be plans to be followed when I built this thing. Opps! AH, gee, tum,tee tum. I think I forgot about the plans 2 years ago. ------Tow vehicles, 1995 ford explore, 1994 ford ranger, 1993 ford F-150, 2009 4x9 Off road teardrop, on harbor freight greatly modified frame.

That's how you pay it forward....I've been given so many from some generous people on this forum that you have to make sure to pay it forward. Yesterday I gave a '49 242C and a restored 413C that I never used to my neighbor who is building a 1957 Corvette trailer. He's helped me quite a bit lately with the new trailer I'm working on. He didn't have any gas pressure stuff, other than a new propane stove. I showed him how to tear down the lantern and he's working on cleaning it up and rebuilding it. Doug

I have given away far more Colemans that I have sold. Of course I have yet to break down and sell any.
